    Well I’ve used a lot of gear to push stuff up on stacks and I recon this is the best thing that I’ve ever used. It’s easy to use, very precise, goes really well on the loader and we use it all over the farm doing wood and getting rocks – it’s just so versatile. It’s a really good asset to have around the place.
